Here is a listing of all shows saved to date and a listing of all the playlists to date.

This week's show was supposed to be a gab-fest with some dear out-of-town radio friends that were here in Minneapolis for the Conclave. What actually happened wasn't even remotely close, though, due to a power failure that kept an entire city block dark right through my time slot. Somehow, a power pole got knocked down right outside the KFAI building, a few hours before I was supposed to go on. The KFAI backup power supply lasted a few hours, but finally died around 8:05pm. Ron and Jean, of KFAI's Radio Rumpus Room, sat with flashlights throughout their time slot, and I sat with camping lantern through my own slot. Fortunately for me, Chuck (of Cosmic Slop's Chuck and Joel) was there with me, and we had a chance to catch up, albeit off the air. The power came back on around 11:45pm, just fifteen minutes before my slot was supposed to end. Our chief engineer got most of the equipment up and running by the time I went home around 1:15am, well into Mick Novak's slot.

You can hear what actually went out over the air starting at 11:45pm, in the segment below. The CDs players worked, but the mikes didn't, so the first 20 minutes or so is the first 20 minutes of my incredibly rare "Watts In A Tank" CD by Diesel, which I'd planned to show off to my guests. I do one talk break about 20 minutes in, then there's more music for about 20 minutes until Mick got there and started her show.

The full show is the "This Little Girl's Gone Rocking" fill-in show I did on May 30, 2008. I think it's pretty good. I'll be back with a proper show next week, providing that the power company allows us to oscillate some electrons at 60 Hz...
